Well done on getting your new appliance fitted! As it is fixed in place please follow the instructions below to maintain excellent oral hygiene while it is in place:

• After your appliance has been fitted you may experience some pain/discomfort in your palate. This is expected and normal. If pain relief is required, take what you would usually take for a headache. Ibuprofen has been proven to be effective. Dr.Daly recommends you take some pain relief straight away after your appointment

a day. This can be purchased at reception for your convenience.
• Your speech may be affected for the first few days. This is normal.

blisters on your tongue at the beginning.

around the appliance
